Bingo

Post by HK phooey »

I am starting this thread for Qbman and anyone else that enjoys a game of bingo. Please feel free to discuss your lucky numbers, your dabbers and your two fat ladies all you wish. Now you have this thread Cubie, there is no need for you to be popping up and sticking your oar in on the football thread, ok? :evil:

The way Tottenham gave a way a 7 point lead over Arsenal in the last few weeks leads me to believe they should be taking up something like bingo - a little more in keeping with their talents

If you persist in spreading malicious (and false) rumours about my penchant for Granny Sports, then you have to be able to take a little ripost without baring your fangs !

:?: BINGO ... ' General Chat ' ?

I am tempted to ...

a) Leave it alone

b) Move it to ' Games '

c) Move it to ' Ladies Who Chat '

d) Pull it on the basis of avoiding tears and problems at a later time

Such are the tough decisions during an average day of being a Mod ;)

MOB - please may I suggest that you pull it altogether on the grounds that it was instigated by a disillsioned and very bitter and twisted Tottenham/Bale Groupie, venting her spleen at the inadequacies of said team of mercenaries

Moby, please keep your great ploddy nose out. I started this thread in good faith for the bingo lovers of this forum. I hadn't realised that Cubie was so embarrased by his love of the game but hope that now it is out in the open, fellow bingo lovers will befriend him.

I have decided to add a daily 'fascinating fact' about bingo. I know Cubie will appreciate this as he has admitted that the other old dears sometimes get a bit bored with his flower arranging chat during the tea break. Here is today's,
Where did bingo originate?

Did you know that bingo originated in Italy in the 14th century? It was known as “Lo Giuoco del Lotto D’Italia” and is still played in Italy in a variety of forms

Fascinating bingo facts for today;
1) The game was originally known as 'beano' in the US, and was renamed 'bingo' when an overly enthusiastic player was so overcome by his prospective win that he shouted 'bingo' instead of 'beano.' The name 'beano' came from the fact that the game was previously done by covering the numbers with beans, since no multi-colored daubers were around in the 1930s.

And fascinating fact number 2 and irrefutable proof that despite his protestations Cubie is at the bingo on a Friday night - MOST BINGO PLAYERS ARE ALSO CAT LOVERS!

OK, it's confession time....and I fully expect to receive an inordinate amount of flak from a certain quarter ! :wave:

As every self-respecting browser of ths forum knows, the malicious (and patently false) rumour of my penchant for bingo was fabricated by one incumbent of the Prison Isle for reasons best known to herself ! :twisted:

Well, I can now reveal that it is not quite so far wide of the mark. In the dim, distant past, I helped to run weekly fund raising bingo sessions for our local football Supporters' Club and I could often be found flitting amongst the bingo wings and Fag Ash Lil's as a checker, ratifying the winning lines. That was a dangerous old game, I can tell you - what those old birds got up to on a bingo night was nobody's business ! :o

Well done you, confession is good for the soul. You have obviously forgotten though that you revealed on LOTP that you had a Friday evening outing planned to your local bingo hall. :D
